    Might have to copy the books from the disk to your hard disk.. it will also speed up the process doing it this way

    To batch convert:


    • Load the books into Calibre
    • Select all the books you want to convert - does not matter if they are in different formats. (Ctrl+A for all)
    • Right click on selected books
    • Select convert/bulk convert.
    • Choose the format in you want to convert to in the top right corner (leave all the settings as default if i was you)
    • Click ok to start the process

    I have just tested it and did a convert from epub to mobi and then back again.

    Glad you got it sorted mate.

    Have a look at this site:

    Loads of windows keyboard shortcuts which can really come in useful.
